And use this map (unless someone has a more current version) to program what towers you'll need to listen to along your route of travel.

Have a good trip.

I wish I would have known about that when I drove to the Outer Banks in May!

I recommend programming VSP tac/surv (154.665/154.695) and SIRS (39.540) in your scanner for when you're driving through Virginia. SIRS is the statewide interagency law enforcement channel and is used by VSP to talk directly to local law enforcement. The rest of VSP's traffic will indeed be on STARS

In case it helps anyone in their future travels, both the I-85 and I-95 portions have been added to the Wiki's "Travel Reference (VA)" page.

The direct links are:

This is a good chart. However on the I-95 chart between Thornburg and Aquia Creek is in Division 2, not 3.
I don't know how to the wiki otherwise I'd correct it myself.

Good catch! On the division map in the Wiki, I mistakenly looked at the "Channel 3" label inside "Division 2", and grabbed the wrong digit.

It has been fixed.

Thanks,

Thanks,

That is a great chart that will likely help a lot of people, me included, for travel thru the state.... thanks for the time and effort put forth, it is appreciated. Gary

In case it helps, since the page Travel Reference (VA) grew too large, each highway now has its own page. The pages for I-85 and I-95 are now:
Hope this helps,
